Dry Rides On A Wet Day

Yes, I rode to work today.

Monday 0700CST
And, while there was plenty of rain today none of it fell during either my ride to work or my ride home. It appears it is going to be one of those weeks when I'm as likely to get rained on as not.

There could be another big temperature swing tomorrow. Today it wasn't difficult to accept it is still Hockey season. It wasn't cold, but there was a damp chill in the air.

These two look like they're headed to the Blues game. My daughter was once quite the hockey fan. She now lives in Norfolk VA and occasionally goes to the local minor league games. I'm afraid the NHL lost me during the strike/lockout/whatever before this last strike/lockout/whatever.

Billie is looking a little winter worn. Soon I'll clean her up and get the crud and the yellowing Boeshield buildup off her fairings. Although, I must admit she does really look like she has been somewhere doesn't she?
  • 47F/8C and overcast for my ride to work.
  • 48F/9C and overcast for the home ride.


  1. Billie looks like she has been out enjoying the winter. She won't know what to do after a Spring bath.

    Back in the day I watched hockey. I got out of it in the early 90's when the Canucks kept choking in the playoffs.

    1. Yeah, the Canucks proved consistency isn't always a virtue.
